Midwest Snow .. Satellite Image and Snow Accumulations

The satellite image below shows the extent of fresh snow laid down over the upper Midwest by this past weekend’s monster storm.

There was snow cover over parts of this area before this most recent storm. The brightest whites indicate the deepest or most recent snows. Some of the gray shaded areas are snow cover in heavily wooded areas. Rivers and streams are clearly shown cutting through the snow cover. Cloud cover obscures the snow on the left had side of the picture.

The map depicts the snow depth across the nation as of Monday morning.

The list below is a summary of storm activity over the weekend.
